The US and its allies will “respond decisively” if Russia invades Ukraine, President Joe Biden has told Vladimir Putin in a phone call.

Mr Biden told his counterpart the US remains prepared to engage in diplomacy despite the build up of 100,000 Russian troops on the border with Ukraine, but was “equally prepared for other scenarios”.
